Yes I've been in Atlanta and the metro area since I was 5. That's how I was all the way through high school. The only deaf person. What is the best way to learn ASL? Books? Classes? Private tutor? Or online course?
The best way to learn asl, is by a Deaf person.
Books are an aid but only an aid, and wont be able to teach you as a Deaf can. Classes are good,depending on the teacher. Vid online are good too. But lesrning frim Deaf is the best way.
Best thing is to dive in...find someone to sign with, and begin to use the language not just in class or with your sign teacher. But with those important to you and wish tobe a meaningfull part of your life. Keep learning and keep using it..in your life...
And you will pick it up. With every sign you aquire the wall that deafness is, will be breached by the gift of bieng Deaf
